Mom accused in child's death appears in court

The woman accused in the death of her 2-year-old made her first appearance in court Monday morning.

Diana Eldridge was in Las Vegas Justice Court. She faces one count of murder and two counts of child neglect in her daughter's death.

The child died in an apartment complex on South Maryland Parkway on Oct. 18. Investigators from Metro's Abuse and Neglect section said the child suffered from environmental and medical neglect for a long time before she died.

Eldridge is currently being held on no bail.
